Looks nice David. RHD. Only the bodywork is shown. I wonder what the rest looks like?

Just spoke to Brooklands. It is LHD.
Strange, I would have thought that the Classic Driver link describing the car as RHD was a direct
link to the Brooklands website, but their website doesn't mention either RHD or LHD.
Looks a very nice example though. Brooklands commission seems pretty reasonable at 10 % plus vat  ( on the commission )

LHD?  RHD?  Just look at the size of that oil cooler...  Love that casting to translate throttle rod movement to the cable, or is that the choke?   Air filter looks like its off a Ferrari.  The other side of the engine next to the brake booster is something else the same colour.  I first thought "wiper motor" but now not so sure...

Its part of the brake booster secondary diaphragm and little air filter.

Another angle (different car, on Car and Classic).     I hope nothing falls into that LHS rocker box breather vent

Is it a 2.5 or 2.8?

Very enticing estimate......are we missing something?

It's a 2.8. Buyer pays another 10% commission + vat on the commission

The auction listing says it is a 3B, so 2.5l.
Checking the reg number on the DVLA web page says that it is a 2.5l too.

Yep - you live and learn. I thought that only the 2.8 models had air vents on the ends of the fascia but the later 2.5's must also
have had them. Should have noticed that the cutaway for the gear lever on the drivers seat was not present on the 2.8 models
and I think the drivers and passenger seats were the same shape ?

According to the Nada Editore book, 3B coupes were produced with 2.5 litres from autumn 1962 and then with 2.8 starting some time in 1963.

The winning bid was 23,500 + 10% commission + 20 % vat on the commission. Total paid = 26,270.
That might seem lowish but ----
Only 48% of cars on offer sold. Most cars sold were low estimate or considerably less than low estimate.
2 Flaminia's were originally up for sale. The Touring Flaminia was withdrawn so Lancia had a 100 % sale rate  ;D
Being an auction we have no idea what faults might transpire and this is the best time of year to buy cars at a reasonable price.
I would imagine the winning bid relates to an asking price of approx 35,000 retail ?
A very nice looking example. Did anyone on here push the button ?  ::)
